Busy family of 7 (blended) is seeking an energetic, proactive short-term Family Assistant to help them with their busy household while their current Assistant is away. Dad works from home office and Mom facilitates online private school from home with 4 of the children (one is in pre-school). Ideal candidate will not wait for instruction, but will jump in to assist the family with day-to-day help such as laundry (clothes, sheets, towels), dishes, grocery shopping, errands, bedroom tidying and closet organization, car maintenance and fueling, transportation and activities for children, homework help (several children have mild learning challenges), food preparation (washing, chopping, etc. but not cooking), pet care (2 birds), and any other assistance needed. Candidate should be compassionate, kind, and patient, as parents are both widowed, and all 5 children have lost a parent. Ideal Family Assistant will be loving and helpful, and will put the children’s requests for educational help above the household duties. An excellent driving record is required.
Short-Term position will last about 2 months: September 4 – November 15.
